It's so completely fucked up that even depositing my paycheck tomorrow won't fix it. I give up, Heather. I just give the fuck up.
Also, I use my new Han WTF icon. Because it fits. Also, because I think the only thing that could fuck things up worse right now would be carbonite.
zomg icon twins! \o/
Would you like an angry Dr. Cox icon? I got lots. I'm all about the burnination today.
Ok, that made me smile.
Oh Dr. Cox, your living personification of my mood today makes me giddy like a schoolgirl.
Give it up, girl.
This is my current favorite:
Now I have images of you yelling at the bank lady, "HELP ME HELP YOU. HELP ME HELP YOU." :D
Jesus. This is the week of WTF, seriously.
As an apartment manager, I would suggest you call yours and let them know what happened. If there's a chance the check hasn't been deposited, then maybe they'll be willing to hold it. But if it already went to the bank, then at least they'll be informed if it bounces.
We like to know what's going on. It makes us feel important. :D
I just called her, thankfully I got her voicemail. I explained it and offered to give her a cashier's check when this all clears up to make her feel more comfortable about the funds being there, whatever she wanted. She's really quite fantastic so we'll see how this goes.
Hopefully this won't fuck up the paypal thing I sent you yesterday since those tend to take three or four days to clear my account but if it does here's the details: $29 of that was in Paypal, the rest came from my checking so even if something goes wrong you should still get almost enough to cover the shipping and the rest will come out when this clears up.
It all looks good on my end, but I'll keep an eye on my PayPal account over the weekend. If there's a problem, I'll let you know. But don't fret over it, hon. It's not going to strap me if that money disappears for a few days.
Deep breaths. It'll all work out. :D
It just makes me so mad because I wasn't even going to spend it. Dad had offered me Grandpa's car since mine is getting on in years and Steve's is even worse but it needed a whole bunch of work and I'd have had to drive it back from California so I said "Thanks but no thanks" and instead he gave me enough for a downpayment that would mean I could acutally replace one of the cars when it goes. This money was ALWAYS going to go straight into savings no matter what. I just want to look at them and say "You fucked stuff up for no good reason and I wasn't even going to SPEND that money."
Ok.. I'm done. I'm settling down now.
Hee. *kisses your nose* You rant all you want, baby. I bet even Peanut is making wee Bilbo fists on your behalf.
I would sure hope they're going to credit you the NSF fees; they should be repaying you for the fees everybody else smacks you with for bouncing checks as well. Idiots. "Hold the check" shouldn't mean "go in and withdraw what was never deposited. Twice."
Did you at least get your chinese? and was it what you wanted?
I was thinking about offering to treat for hibachi-japanese at the new place down the street, if you think you can eat it.
It looks like they paid the items and then just charged me NSF for it instead of sending it back.
As of 5 minutes ago there's a memo deposit amount that's $100 LESS than the check. Which is .. odd.. but at least I'm back in the positive. No word on the NSF funds yet and I'm still waiting for a call from the nice and charming Jenna, I'll keep you posted.
I did get my Chinese and it was damned near perfect. However, I made the mistake of calling my Dad to tell him what was up and he kept me on the phone for FREAKING EVER so I couldn't have my soup for fear of peeing it out all night. :) Translation? Lunch!
Japanese sounds great, I'll have beef or pork or something. Email me and we'll talk timing.
The word for this is a clusterf*ck. Yes. It's one of my favorite terms.
Did the not drinking after 7pm help at all?
It did. Sadly, after all that stuff I said yesterday about not having any trouble falling asleep I spent 40 minutes laying awake thinking about this bank stuff and not able to fall asleep. I'm hubris's bitch.
I crashed out around midnight and didn't get up again until 2:30, then slept from 2:30 to 5. A VAST improvement. I pushed the drinking limit off to 8 because i got home so late and I figured I'd push sleeping off until ll instead of 10 but tonight we'll make it 7:30 and see if that makes it even better.
that's what we ordered for lunch today, too, because TODAY IS CRAPPY.
i'd say that chinese food is the cure for everything. but if that's true... why are there so many angry chinese people? *g* (i'm so going to hell.)
Oh, red-tape bureaucratic BS is SO ANNOYING.
On the plus side, Chinese food!
But hey, even though you didn't get the sleep you wanted...you did eventually get Chinese food. :]
